As a woman who has always seen herself as very independent, I feel like a have a great deal to share. I won’t mention my age because it’s just a number, but just to hint, I have ten grandchildren ranging in ages 11-22. Most are teenagers and it’s like becoming an empty nester for the second time as they grow up and move into their own lives.I am fifty percent Italian physically but one hundred percent mentally. I am passionate about family, food, wine, and travel. So those are the things I will be writing about. I will also be posting some recipes that I hope you will enjoy. One day I hope to publish a cook book that I am currently putting together.
